Six Gun Matt The price will depend on what brand you go with, and also whether or not you get a full replacement or just the outer fender. Genright, Poison Spyder, and others use the inner fender, which means you have to cut up your stock ones (sounds like you already have and that wouldn't be a problem). TNT Customs and Rokmen are examples on companies that make (awesome) full replacement fenders. You have lots of options.

Alexjk well then thats settles I suppose... and either way a 3" flare covering half of my tire is better than none i can at least argue it...

WranglerJR83 I don't have tube fenders on mine, but I know a lot of guys with them. They will take more of a hit than the factory ones. Most tube fenders only come with 3" of flare, unless you have them custom made.

My suggestion is to go with the tube fenders, but it sounds like you have already decided that is what you want to do. Remember, post some pics when you get them on.

Questions about tube fenders

When I bought my jeep the previous owner just cut out the front fenders to make more clearance. Then when i got it i realized I needed fender flares to make it street legal...I ordered a set of rugged ridge because they were cheap. I used my owned hardware and installed the rear ones and they are on good. BUt the front fenders had nowhere to mount the flares to so i just drilled some holes and used some zip ties and to my amazement it actually didnt look bad...well one wheeling trip later i ripped off a fender flare and its long gone and the other is hanging on for its life... lesson learned... either dont use zip ties or dont hit trees and rocks... also one of the fenders has some pretty nice rot...

anyway...

questions about tube fenders... are they strong enough to take a hit? do they completely replace the oem fender? and are there any with a good flare on them? Ive seen 3" only. I could probably get away with that... I figure by the time I buy front flares and two new used fenders ill be in it for more than a cool/stronger set of tube fenders...

WIth a 4" lift and no body lift Id just wind up rubbing the front OEM fenders anyway so its another excuse to go for the tube fenders.
